Coordinator notes: Thanks for the submission. According to my county maps, the is the first confirmed Weld County RECORD. Please send more detailed information on specific location (county road etc.). Did you dig a tent and bring in to emerge since the pictures was obviously taken inside. If so was that in Weld County and did the tent come from Weld County (necessary to constitute a new county record). Please email reply to me at: butterfliesofcolorado@hotmail.com Thanks, Mike
